About Us
Picture 9.jpg

I’ve been in and around water my whole life, boating and swimming on the beautiful Lake Hopatcong in Northern New Jersey. I have been a boat owner and operator for over 30 years. I have always loved taking people on the water. Some of my best memories in life are on the water with
my family and friends.


I decided to take one of my passions and turn it into a water-based business, “American Dream Charters LLC”. I have always had a dream of opening a boat charter company. Now, I’ve taken my dream and made it into reality. Looking forward to cruising the waters of beautiful Lake Hopatcong with you!

Your safety is my number one priority. I’ve been in the

safety business for over 26 years. I became a Professional Firefighter in 1997 & have risen to the rank of Deputy Chief.

I hold a U.S.C.G. 25T Master Captains License and the crew and I are certified in CPR, AED and first aid.

We will review basic boating safety operations with your and your guests before we get underway. Waivers are required and must be completed by everyone aboard the vessel. Download them here
